8 Giorgio de Chirico paintings + 3 Marcel Duchamp paintings (Updated 2008/01/08)

THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Giorgio de Chirico (July 10, 1888 -- November 20, 1978) was an influential pre-Surrealist Greek-Italian painter. He is best known for the paintings he produced between 1909 and 1919, his metaphysical period, which are memorable for the haunted, brooding moods evoked by their images. (from Wikipedia)

De Chirico is one of my favourite painters. His works are hauntingly beautiful, blurring the line between reality and fantasy. But I've never seen Sim version of his work anywhere.
So I made 8 de Chirico paintings for my MoSMA (The Museum of Sim Modern Art) community lot. Cheesy Plus I made 3 Marcel Duchamp paintings as a bonus. (I wish some talented mesher would make his "Fountain" sculpture. It'll be equally useful in museums and in men's restrooms...)

They are all Maxis recolors. NL and GLS required.

I did my best to keep ratios of paintings as close to the original as possible. Stretched/squashed-looking recolors are especially annoying in well-known paintings, as we are already familiar with the original ratio. Sometimes entirely wrong mesh was chosen in the first place. Other times the creator didn't bother to flip the texture, resulting in mirror-image. More often than not, the creator didn't realize that the texture must be deliberately squashed in order to look right in game.

Mystery and Melancholy of a Street is my favourite de Chirico painting.


Le Re^ve transforme' - Recolor of NL "Cantankerous Splatters" painting.

Nostalgia of the Infinite (left) / The Awakening of Ariadne (center) / The Great Tower (right) - Recolors of GLS "The Muse" painting.





Bonus: 3 paintings by Marcel Duchamp

2008-01-08: Somehow older package files with slightly pixelated textures got mixed up in the initial upload. I reuploaded fixed files. Just overwrite old files. File names were not changed. No need to reapply recolors in the game. Sorry for the confusion.

*nabs*
I love surrealism. My apartment features five Dali prints (the only artwork I have that's not my own). I'm really intrigued by Frederick Phillips right now. His work is featured in a gallery I pass often.

As somewhat of an art snob, I can't thank you enough for these recolours. They are very well executed, and a very welcome addition to my game.

Baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Cheesy
